Carolyn - Thank you for letting me share a few moments with Stephen. We enjoyed reading history articles and learning about his Navy experience in Vietnam where he transported wounded soldiers. He also enjoyed the ppts with beautiful images that are the gifts of creation. Below is something that I'm thinking Bella understands vey well. May the Lord's peace and joy be within you and your family as it is with Stephen. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. I believe that friends are quiet angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.Bob
WHAT A WONDERFUL WAY TO EXPLAIN IT
A sick man turned to his doctor, as he was preparing to leave the examination room and said, "Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side."
Very quietly, the doctor said, "I don't know." "You don't know? You, a Christian man, do not know what is on the other side?" The doctor was holding the handle of the door; on the other side came a sound of scratching and whining, and as he opened the door, ! a dog sprang into the room and leaped on him with an eager show of gladness. Turning to the patient, the doctor said, "Did you notice my dog? He's never been in this room before. He didn't know what was inside. He knew nothing except that his master was here, and when the door opened, he sprang in without fear. I know little of what is on the other side of death, but I do know one thing.. I know my Master is there and that is enough."
Carolyn and family, I am so sorry to hear of Steve's passing. Although I didn't have the chance to see you and Steve and the kids that often, my memories are good ones, especially the one at my parents' (Aunt Rosella and Uncle Eddie) home in Guilderland when you came for a visit with the kids. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
